New flats being built at the top of Hillman St/Antrim Rd in 1953.
Oh for all our yesterdays.

I didn't think they were that old.

My granny lived in Edlingham Street off the Duncairn Gardens.
I loved walking up Duncairn Gardens to get to her house.
The street was always busy. Shops on the right hand side going up the street sold anything you could want.
Children playing in the wee streets as I went by.
It gave me a great feeling then, and now as I remember it.

No offense intended to the people who run the Tiger's Bay website. They clearly have a strong community spirit and considerable disappointment at how the area has been redeveloped. In my youth in Castleton Gardens the centre of the Bay was the area around Halliday's Road and  Lawther Street. When did the centre of the Bay shift to York Road? 
just keep going, it's better than the alternative.

Was this the the site that met you, Model 1?
Antrim Rd at top of Duncairn Gardens.

Apalachie,

What a great surprise! Never imagined I would ever see again Duncairn Gardens/
Antrim Rd as in your photographs.  All three photos much appreciated.
Thank you very much for posting. Thanks to you and pentio many memories
have been brought back as a result of these photographs.

Thanks

Hi Bobdenn,

As a result of you introducing this topic I have benefited
from photographs submitted by pentio and Apalachie of
views (long ago) of Duncairn Gardens.

Many thanks.

Model 1, as you said you walked down the Cliftonville also, would you like to see some pic's of it during the war?
Oh for all our yesterdays.

m, considering that the area was demolished during the blitz, I think waiting until 1953 was long enough to wait for something to be put in place,lol.

Fair play to the people who do run the Tigers Bay website, its keeping memories alive.
Does it matter where the centre of the bay is, as long as there still is a community.
I haven't walked that way in years. It has changed so much since the time when I went to my granny's.

Its been 40 years since I did that walk,driving past just shows how small the area has become.

Sad, but life goes on.

Wee legs, me being a New Lodger born and bred and who frequently walked through Tigers Bay as a kid, I always thought the borders of the Bay were, Hallidays Rd to North Queen St and Duncairn Gardens to Limestone Rd.

I have to agree with you "m". The Duncairn Gardens was a bustling shopping thoroughfare, now it's a ghost Street.
Oh for all our yesterdays.
